📖 About

After Philip is shot in his duel with George Eacker, he is lain on his deathbed with his mother and father by his side. Philip apologizes for miscounting, alluding to ten years prior when his mother taught him to count while playing the piano. Eliza quickly reassures him that it wasn't his fault and that it was Eacker's miscounting, and the family says their final goodbyes.
